Overall this was a great place to stay with a fantastic Swimming pool. The location is a bit random and you need to get buses or taxis to go anywhere! Staff were great but the atmosphere was poor - nothing going on at all. We also had no door handle for the whole of our stay. At best this is a great place to stay if you are only stopping over for a day or 2!
The place was nice and clean. We paid for a double room and the room had one double and one single bed, I don't think they even count them. The food from the kitchen is pretty good and the wifi is terrible any time there is more than 5 people using it (always). It is about a 50 peso cab ride to the town, or a 4 peso bus, which only the ones every 30 mind, I found. Overall it was decent.
Big Hostel with many visitors but absolute low kitchen equipment. Nothing available to make a salat,. no plates to eat soup! the own hostel kitchen does not give any plates to the self cookers. low equiped rooms (dorm) - not any hook to hang on wet clothes. (Visit of Iquazu falls is a wet event in any case, so you need some devices to accelerate drying). badrooms are dirty and not cleaned up every day.
Overall our stay was very good and what can be expected from a decent hostel. Some brief comments: - we had wifi in our private room - staff were very helpful and friendly - the room was clean but did have a smell of smoke - the food we ordered from the kitchen wasn't that great but breakfast was good - the hostel is a few kilometers out of town but you can get a bus or a taxi if need be, you need to travel either way to the falls which is the main point of the visit
Between the city and the falls, but still lots to do around the area. Might have to do a bit of research to find local activities though. Highly recommend the animal sanctuary up the road. The house made of bottles was kind of cool too. Only complaint was we didn't always get what we ordered from the on-site restaurant and depending on the kitchen staff, sometimes they weren't really into the customer service aspect. But it was all pretty minor and I'd recommend it all the same.
Nice hostel. Booked a 6-bed dorm but it had 8 beds. WiFi is only available in communal area. Breakfast is alright but cereal is served in disposable bowls. Needs hooks in bathroom. Pool looked very inviting but didn't take advantage of it.
Strongly disappointed by this hostel. The structure is nice but it's located quite far from the city center and bus service stops at 22h. If you are traveling alone and you want to meet people, this is a mayor drawback: the hostel is NOT a party one. I was there during the May long weekend and there were around 10 other person, and lots of them were couples. The day time staff is absolutely the worst. They are totaly incompetent. Go to another hostel!
The staff was very unfriendly, they acted like they didn't know any information about the falls or the local transportation. If you want to play pool or ping pong you have to pay extra for each game. Kitchen is poorly supplied and dirty. Overpriced food and drinks.
Even though the Hostel is a bit far from the village we actually liked that because it is closer to the Iguazu National Park and it was a nice surrounding. I would definitely recommend this Hostel to everyone because the atmosphere was great. + for the huge pool outside, the Bungalow we stayed in (4 people) which gave us the feeling of being in a Hotel, the breakfast was also amazing for this price - the staff wasn't that nice which I had already read in reviews before, expensive Taxi service

Unfortunately my stay at the Hostel Inn Iguazu Falls was not pleasant. The location is good however the room was not so clean and the toilet was not usable, as it smelled really bad! The fact they did not take credit cards was also an issue to be considered next time.
